At Titus Dental, we love to use Invisalign to straighten teeth. Invisalign is the perfect solution for both teens and adults who want a smile they can be proud of without the hassle or social stress of having braces. Most of our clients will find a beautiful, redesigned smile in 18 to 24 months with the help of Invisalign. Over the course of that time, you will wear a series of clear aligners that you change out every week. Each set will move your teeth a little bit until we have them where we want them. The aligners are comfortable, virtually invisible, and removable, making them a popular choice for adults and teens seeking a more discreet approach to straightening their teeth.
With advancements in dental technology, traditional braces are now sleeker, smaller, and more comfortable for your children or yourself. Consisting of standard metal brackets placed on your teeth with an adhesive and connected by wire, traditional braces can help correct crooked or crowded teeth, a misaligned bite, and jaw problems. Some orthodontic cases are just better treated with traditional braces, and we are happy to be able to offer them as an option at Titus Dental.
EARLY INTERVENTION ORTHODONTICS
Early intervention ortho typically begins between 6 and 10 years old. However, many of our little patients can benefit from ortho a little earlier so that we can make a little more space for all the permanent teeth to come in. Our early intervention ortho (Phase 1 Ortho) is usually for only a few months, but it can make a big difference in what their orthodontic needs, maybe a few years later. So if you have any questions about if your little one could benefit from earlier intervention, give us a call, and we will take a quick look.
Comprehensive ortho begins once most permanent teeth are in and are often begun in the early teen years. We use both Invisalign and traditional ortho to accomplish our goals in comprehensive ortho to produce a beautiful smile our patients can be happy to share.
